    I don't take the abuse personally, I also don't let it affect me. For the record I get abused in real life too in my job at times, the key is to let it slide and understand the reason behind why the person is behaving like they are. Those online do it because they can, however face to face most would never react that way. It's a cowardly attack. I am not going to hand logs to the Police, unless it ever crossed over into real life.

    The people it does upset are those around me who care for me, so I don't tell them as a rule.

    I pasted it here like Hak, to give a perspective to what we get at times when all we are doing is keeping the forum running smoothly.

    Funny too how some will pm me and threatened to report me for my actions, they don't realise when we give warnings etc. it goes into a centralised area that all Mods and Admins can read, so there is no cloak and daggers, it's all transparent.

    I have to leave now to catch a plane for work - heading to Mexico (Victoria) so play nice for the rest of the day.

    I was in the unenviable position of warning some one on a site i was an admin of, he didn't like the warning so PMed me and used my parents. Gave him a life ban. Next thing i know he has brought the site lock stock and barrel with another user lol.
    Needles to say i moved on rapidly from that site :D

    I find it amusing that when people get REALLY REALLY REALLY worked up over a warning or what not they go into full sex pervert mode or sex pervert mode on your parents. It's obviously the worst thing that these people can do to you without violence.

    One of the great failings of the internet is that it is so one dimensional. As has been pointed out, sarcasm or a joke can lead to hurt feelings or worse.....the need for full pervert mode in PM.

    Oh snap! Funny thing is... It's just a natural thing for us to take that car instead of the Prado on top of that, if we go anywhere together, she just flat out refuses to drive. ####ing Miss Daisy.

    No off-site threats or abuse for me. Which is amazing. Have been in some very heated debates. I can only assume that those I pissed off were able to get over it maturely.
    I have been infracted (?) twice on other forums though for either using foul language, or violating site rules.
    I have heard of some very ugly things happening in the car scene over petty disagreements.
    Like in Cowra, pop 10,000, one car club splintered into 3 because people weren't willing to sort things out.

    My closest friend I met on a VR4 club website, there are great people that you would have only met online, but then there are wankers too.

    I feel so left out :( for the 6 years that I have been a mod on another car forum I have only had two threats.
    One was to come and kick my teeth in, hell even gave him my address, sadly no visit. People these days just don't seem to want to follow through with anything.

    The next was the best one. Had some want to be legend, inventor of everything, had worked everywhere, RMIT, HRT, Holden Yella Terra, NASA and something called the carrot patch.
    He sent me a drawing for some round K frame spacers, nothing special, just round alloy with a concave and a hole drilled through them. No one was making any at the time so I had a run made based off his picture. Even still have the PM where he said to get some made.
    Yet a few months later after I told him to pull his head in for being a knumpty f**k on the forum, I receive a PM from him telling my he has contacted his lawyer and was going to sue me for stealing his intellectual property!

    Again, unfortunately, I am still waiting for his lawyer to contact me.

    That was probably the most fun I have had on a forum in years!!!!!!!

    I would like to post the PM's but they total about 12 pages of dribble!!!

    People take the interwebs way too seriously. It seems the younger generation are the worst offenders. Takes big balls to abuse someone over the net.

    I have received one infraction, inappropriate conversation I believe it was. I don't really care. A warning from a faceless name on a computer really affects my life....not. But having said that, I have met some really nice people on here and other forums that I would call friends. The way things are going, people are living more of their lives online and it is a really big deal to some.

    I personally think that most members here anyway are mostly well balanced , but a handful are not , getting face to face abuse I can easily deal with , inter web abuse doesn't faze me either , but I can totally understand why some take it to heart what I can't understand is why people make it their duty to abuse and bully . Perhaps it's a generational thing .

    You're right about that. The mods on here to a good job putting up with all the rubbish, seems all too common these days especially the young kids for people to absolutely loose their **** over very little, dramatise everything, take it personally etc. People like that just need to be removed, they ruin excellent communities all the time, thanks to the hard work of the mods it hasn't ruined this site.
